South Goa , Goa

South Goa is the unexplored part of Goa, and even as we urge people to go there, somewhere it should remain unexplored. A small village near Margao of immense natural beauty, Benaulim is the true essence of Goa. Benaulim is one of those place where you do not come for luxurious holidays. This is a simple little village whch gives you a completely earthy and grounded feeling. You can sit back and relax in one of the hammocks on the beach reading your favourite books and what you are really offered here is peace. Legend has it that Lord Parashurama, incarnation of Lord Vishnu, shot an arrow from the Sahyadri mountains in adjacent konkan. The arrow landed at the site of this present-day town. Thus it was known as Banahalli before the advent of the Portuguese. The ruins of an ancient temple in tribute of this powerful legend can still be found in some parts of this village. Southern Goa is a relatively unexplored place. Probably that is why the Benaulim beach holds more attraction to a person trying to escape the regular madness of life. Benaulim is a simple beach. It does not have the glamour or the facilities of the more popular beaches. Yet its beauty will take your breath away. It truly is an escape to simple a world which many have forgotten. Your phone does not work here and if you want to quit on a Monday this is your place. Thus, when on that random trip, take time out to explore the South of Goa and lose yourself in the peace that this place offers to you. Peace after all is quite invaluable.
